Antenna direction

A couple weeks ago I was trying to configure a TV antenna to get some of my local television stations in the over-the-air HD quality they broadcasted in. The problem was that in trying to figure out the best direction to point the antenna I realized that there had to be an easy way to get the optimal direction for the antenna to face. That’s when I came across AntennaPoint.com.

This site lets you put in your city/state and it will tell you the exact number of degrees your antenna should be pointed at. It also provides a lot of other useful information including the band (UHF or VHF), channel (RF and virtual), and power output. All of this information is extremely useful, and thanks to the power output you could even get a pretty good idea as to whether a station may be able to reach your home. Plus you’ll be able to see which station are VHF which are notoriously harder for antennas to pickup.

Hopefully this will have a chance to help you as much as it was able to help me.
